Name of creator
In 1942, a campaign was mounted by the Vancouver Board of Trade to raise funds to support an air precaution unit for Vancouver. These efforts resulted in the appointment of volunteer civilian defence wardens in Vancouver. Wardens were assigned to one of six divisions and then to smaller districts. Wardens were trained in first aid, fire fighting, home nursing and police work. They were responsible for ensuring blackouts were carried out and organizing men and equipment in an emergency.
